Pocahontas and John Smith were young adults who fell in love sort of like Romeo and Juliet because their love seems impossible. The movie spices up when John Smith and Pocahontas are caught together. She was engaged to a Native American called Kocoum therefore it was tragic to find her with John Smith; the Native Americans try to kill John Smith but Pocahontas saves his life. The Disney movie basically portrays them as falling in love and at the end; John Smith is shot and leaves Virginia while Pocahontas stays. The real story did not happen that way.
In this story Panttaja says it is both mothers that are wicked. Panttaja states the real mother “plots and schemes, and she wins” (Panttaja 660) when it comes to fulfilling the wishes of Ashputtle.

To be able to do this, the real mother puts a charm on the prince to make him fall in love with Ashputtle instead of anyone else. The prince did not dance with anyone else all night and would always say “she is my partner” (Grimm 630).
But in Glück’s poem, this brings to mind the Salem witch trials or Joan of Arc burning at the stake. Gretel is in darkness, but the witch is lit forever in our minds by fire.

It is as though she is revealing the dark depths of childhood fairy tales which were never explicitly written in the originals, due to the child audiences at which the texts were aimed. Taboo subjects often arise in adult nightmares – subjects such as incest, necrophilia, sadomasochism and voyeurism, all of which arise in Carter’s collection of fairytale parodies. All of the above are sexually themed - an adult nightmare could surely be seen as a nightmare which a child could not possibly dream up, because they have not, or should not have been exposed to such dark aspects of life and therefore such content cannot physically fill their subconscious minds. ‘The Bloody Chamber’, the longest, title story of Carter’s collection is
When Harry was enounced the 'chosen one' and everyone loved him again after two years of everyone hating him, this is where the series goes downhill for the series. He also, out of nowhere, falls for a girl for the most part had little impact on his life, besides the fact she was his best friend's sister. Him being so God like in the last two books, make it hard for me to call myself a fan anymore. Another good example is sadly my favorite T.V. show, Doctor Who.
